Alexandra Wong Age
Gray-haired, bespectacled Alexandra Wong, 64, was a familiar face in anti-government protests in Hong Kong last year and often waved a large British flag, but disappeared from the streets in August.
Human rights activists and groups have expressed concern about their plight.
Speaking to the media for the first time since her release after 14 days in quarantine, Wong said she was arrested by Chinese police as she tried to return home to Shenzhen on August 14, 2019.
For about a month and a half in detention in various centers where up to 26 people slept in one room, Wong said she was questioned almost daily about the protests in Hong Kong.
“I didn’t know what crime I had committed,” Wong said.
After being detained, Wong said she was sent to northwest Shaanxi Province for a five-day patriotic camp at the end of September last year.
Authorities prevented Wong from returning to Hong Kong until earlier this month until a trial was held which ultimately never took place. She remained at her home in Shenzhen, where national security agents visit her regularly, she added.
“I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to go back to Hong Kong… I was worried that something would happen every day,” Wong said.
She called for the release of the 12 activists who were intercepted at sea by mainland authorities in late August as they tried to flee to Taiwan by boat.
“I am concerned about the 12 young people; their treatment could be worse than me. ”
